In partnership with our clients, we demonstrate every day that philanthropy is a powerful force for advancing equality, diversity and inclusion. A society with these ideals is better for us all. This is central to our work across continents.
It is also fundamental to how we do it. Diversity and inclusion are threaded through our values. This commitment is expressed, for example, through the assignments we select to undertake, and in our daily interactions with clients and with each other. Above all, at our heart we are a democratic, participative, and inclusive company. Each member of our team, whether they are a consultant, or behind the scenes in our busy central team, has an equal say in the decisions we make.
Our culture is shaped by the joy we discover in our individual differences, life experiences, self-expression, and talents. All our consultants have a relentless appetite to learn and to grow – and to challenge themselves. We do this best when we connect with diverse perspectives, experiences, and ideas; those that come from within our community, and from our clients.
We have started a process to better understand our staff diversity, so we can consider how to improve it. In particular, we recognise that our black, Asian, and minority ethnic (BAME) representation is low, and also that we need to ensure we are an attractive and inclusive employer for people with disabilities.
We are committed to encouraging and nurturing interest in these roles from those groups currently under-represented in our community. This includes (but isn’t limited to) women and those from diverse ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds.
